In order to point out where i wanna go "differently" with my new blog, heres 3 semi random movie recommendations, that pretty much appeals to anyone with a sense of humor. Ive picked one from 2003, 2004 and least but not last a movie from last year 2005. Three movies i all think are brilliant in their own little way. I am not comparing them, and i am trying to postulate that they where movies of their years, or last but not least clame anyway that theyre in the same genres..... no no. Anyhow, A dark (sometimes viscious), ironic, and absolute wonderful humor runs thru these films, without a doubt. These movies a quirky and beautiful, strangely cute and very entertaining.... and you probably have or will in the future overlook them in the videostore, so....... here we go!
2003: The Big Empty by Steve Anderson, a fairly unknown new director, and a very overlooked dark comedy flick, that definently takes you out there. With 2 wonderfully wellspoken and wellplaying actors Jon Favreu (swingers, the break up etc.) and Joey Lauren Adams (Mallrats, Chasing amy and Big Daddy). A hilarious, yet quite relaxing movie, that works perfectly for sunday, on top of a saturday hangover. Think X-files meets mallrats/clerks (basically). Yep, funny movie.
2004: Mysterious skin...... a weird title, for a nothing less but fascinating movie, that not just will shock you, but also entertain you and then pleasantly thrill you with good actors and good humor combined with harsh reality. Joseph Gordon Lewitt (Third rock from the sun (tvshow), ten things i hate about you) is a wonderfully underrated actor that takes this role and turns it inside out. A perfect movie to watch a bunch of people (guys/girls) together on a shitty monday/tuesday night, where nobody has anything to do. This movie will make you talk and think (with a twist), thats for sure..... And dont let the title turn you off..... Its a one of a kind movie, that i bet most have overlooked.
2005: A very good year for indenpendent films, and new directors.... but also a busy year for alot of shitty hollywood action movies (and their machinery behind the facade) that are bound to confuse and scare audiences away from theaters around the world, and eventually cast a dark shadow on this outrageously genius movie by Miranda July. (well they will atleast attempt, naturally). Me and you and everyone you know, is one of those movies that comes tumbling "silently "out of nowhere, a movie which people have either heard about or atleast been recommended to go see..... but always forget. Me and you and eveyrone you know, is out on dvd, and is movie that you simply have to see and own. I definantly see it as one of the most charming movies of this decade..... even idiots would agree on that if they would let 2 hours of their life slip into the maelstrom of the imagination, emotions and humor this movie carries with it. See it! you will not regret it! ( Me and you and everyone we know official movie website, and Miranda July at Myspace.com. )
Yep, thats it, i havent said too much................ 3 movies i command you to give a chance. And yes, you will appreciate that i neclected to leave out their story details. trust me! its for the better. You would wanna be surprised... right?
